Film….The Thing


Man is The Warmest Place to Hide

Newport Cineworld was showing John Carpenter’s “The Thing” last night for one night only – I must say it was suitably awesome!
Made all the way back in 1982 when explosions were real and CGI did not exist. Monsters made from goo and gory slime unlike modern day pixels.

I am not going to spoil the plot, though it involves an alien, downright crazy gore and great quotes from the cast set in the cold extremes of Antartica.

If you are not laughing at the sheer horror of it all in some scenes the gripping plot will ensure you find it at least memorable for the effects and solid acting.

Get it on DVD – a classic, up there with Aliens and The Fly.
